    “Looking for an Icon” examines the process by which photos become icons. The film focuses on four World Press Photo winners: Eddie Adams’s 1968 photo of the public execution of a Viet Cong prisoner, an anonymous photographer’s last image of Salvador Allende during the 1973 coup, Charlie Cole’s 1989 photo of a lone student confronting tanks in Tiananmen Square, and David Turnley’s 1991 photo of a grieving soldier during the first Gulf War.
